There's always something going on in West Palm Beach. From a simple stroll down the streets of downtown to the SunFest festival, a large waterfront music, and art extravaganza, West Palm Beach is a tropical, rainforest-like paradise. And if you have baseball fever (like some of us here at Findlaw), spring training comes to suburban West Palm Beach and is home to the Miami Marlins and St. Louis Cardinals training camps.
Yet, living in Florida isn't always fun and sun. Sometimes you have to go to court (hopefully, just jury duty).
If you're a resident of Palm Beach County, you know there are several of courthouses in the area. If you have a criminal, civil, probate or family law matter, it’s probably in one of the county or circuit courts. Here's a guide.
Divisions: Appeals, Criminal and Civil
Note: This court hears appeals from the trial courts in Palm Beach, Broward, St. Lucie, Martin, Indian River, and Okeechobee Counties. There’s a $300 filing fee for all appeals. Contact the court to learn more.
